Jezebel, Queen of Israel, enter our narrative as the first strong woman. So lets have a look at her and see if the bible paints a fair picture.
Meanwhile, Ashurnasirpal II of Assyria rules the near east with an iron fist. As the king is getting older, will the other peoples pay their tribute or try to rise in revolt?
We also take a look at the Sun God Tablet of Babylon and look at an unexpected golden age of Nabu-Apla-Iddina as the king of Babylonia.
